Samsung has been reliasing OTA Lollipop update frenzy, but Samsung Norway have gotten into more trouble than usual bugs and complains with its update packages for Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S4. OTA Android 5.0 Lollipop was put “on-hold” because the complains to a local branch was to high. This was absolutely necessary after a number of owners of the aforementioned handsets flooded the local branch with complains about the Android 5.0 update they were receiving.
There have been reports of various bugs, battery duration, random freezes of various apps, including the default Phone and Contact applications, often rendering the phone unusable. Crashes are also affecting the alarm application, which, as you can imagine, could be equally irritating.
The OTA seems to be causing sluggish behavior in general, so definitely something went wrong in Norway. This is what the local branch had to comment on the matter:
We are aware of the issues some users are experiencing after installing the update Android 5.0 Lollipop and now has stopped the current version. We work full time with a new update that contains solutions to the problems that have been reported to us, including a new solution for silent mode. We hope to send out the update shortly, and will keep you updated on Facebook.
It’s at least encouraging to know that Samsung Norway is aware of the issue and trying to address it.
